With this set of 54 cards, students can master beginning concepts of shape recognition and progress through more advanced activities by matching shapes to their appropriate formula card(s).
Activities (basic to advanced):
> Two-dimensional and three-dimensional shape recognition.
> Two-dimensional matching of shapes to their perimeter cards.
> Two-dimensional matching of shapes to their area cards.
> Two-dimensional matching/grouping of shapes to their perimeter and area cards.
> Three-dimensional matching of shapes to their surface area card.
> Three-dimensional matching of shapes to their volume card.
> Three-dimensional matching/grouping of shapes to their surface area and volume card.
Students can quickly self-check their answers by scanning the QR code using an iPad, iPhone, or tablet with one of many free QR code scanning apps. QR codes are ‘text only’ so no internet access is required for this activity.
Shapes: triangle, quadrilaterals (square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus, trapezoid, kite), regular polygons, circle, sphere, cylinder, cone, hemisphere, pyramids (triangular, hexagonal), and prisms (rectangular, cube, hexagonal).
Formulas: diameter, circumference, perimeter, area, volume, and surface area.
